Cunard Queen Victoria Cruise Ship
Cunard's Queen Victoria cruise ship joined the fleet in December 2007 and is a real show-stopper.
- Ship in Detail
- Deck Plans
Queen Victoria was christened by Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall in December 2007. Soaring twelve decks she is a show-stopper, but the real beauty lies within. The designers have drawn on Cunard’s heritage and created an impressive, yet understated, vision of a 21st-century ocean-going liner. The dramatic architecture is one of imposing promenades, double-height ceilings and grand staircases. Decor throughout the ship is darker Victoriana rather than the lighter Art Deco-inspired interiors of Queen Elizabeth, but the public areas of the ship are every bit as opulent with an earth tone colour palette of creamy beige, chestnut brown and gold, with mahogany walls, circular hand-woven rugs and intricately designed marble floors.
The 2,068-passenger Queen Victoria is scheduled for a major refurbishment in May 2017. This will entail the addition of Britannia Club staterooms at the stern which will result in a profile similar to Queen Elizabeth. Other enhancements will include a Britannia Club Restaurant.
Possibly the most iconic space on board is the Queens Room. Inspired by Queen Victoria’s home on the Isle of Wight, this two-deck high room is designed for cocktail parties and afternoon tea. Beneath two magnificent crystal chandeliers, devotees of dancing can show off their skills on the large patterned dance floor. There is a portrait of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as well as rare, original etchings by the royal couple.
Three decks high, the Royal Court Theatre reflects elements of London’s Coliseum, Palladium, Victoria Palace and Alhambra Theatres. There are 16 private boxes where couples can enjoy the revue-style entertainment in private. The Royal Arcade, inspired by the Royal and Burlington Arcades in London, has designer shops and a branch of Harrods – there’s even a custom-built, chiming Pillar Clock by Dent - makers of Big Ben. With a Swarovski Crystal chandelier, Hemispheres is a venue for informal lectures by day before transforming into a nightclub. Overlooking the fo’c’s’le, the Commodore Club is great for cocktails and understated entertainment after dinner in the Britannia Restaurant, Princess and Queens Grills, à la carte Verandah Restaurant or the more casual Lido Café.
Queen Victoria offers a range of accommodation from the ample to the opulent. There are 31 different grades ranging from Inside cabins to stunning Grand Suites. Each is beautifully designed with light wood tones, rich carpets, plush draperies and upholstery. We especially like the Grill-grade suites which are amongst the most lavish to be found on any passenger ship.
